A Decade With Mars – Kids!

Residence artists Ella Good & Nicki Kent are in Hull this week, at the beginning of a tour to launch A Decade With Mars. It’s a long term community project about space, time, and the future.

In each city they visit, they’ll be launching a weather balloon with a camera attached, to publicly launch the project and try to film space.

Yesterday they gave our first school workshop with year 3 pupils at Biggin Hill Primary School. They looked at space food and listened to Chris Hadfield singing in space, started some time capsule letters to their future selves, and made and launched bottle rockets together.

Ella & Nicki have just launched a dedicated children’s website so that the pupils at Biggin Hill and all of the other schools they will visit around the country can keep up with A Decade With Mars. It’s illustrated by Laurie Stansfield – have a look here!
